Apple Releases macOS Ventura, iPadOS 16, and iOS 16.1
- Oct 24, 2022
Apple released macOS 13, iPad OS 16.1, and iOS 16.1 last week, just as it announced earlier. The updates include rich functionality that is available on all Macs, iPhones, and iPads. Of particular note is the introduction of the Continuity Camera, a feature that lets you use your iPhone as a webcam for your Mac. Also, now users can manage windows for multitasking, which at first glance seems like a rather controversial innovation.
The iOS 16.1 update brings a new marquee feature that on iPhones will give you access to Live Activities. With its help, even on the lock screen, the owner of the iPhone can monitor in real-time all ongoing updates. Also, this feature works for Dynamic Island, which is available in iPhone 14 Pro models.
Another great thing about the new update is the appearance of a shared iCloud library for all connected devices Mac, iPhone, and iPad, where you can share files with your family members. A welcome change is ubiquitous access to Apple Fitness+, which was previously only available to Apple Watch owners. Now, all owners of apple devices will be able to access training, regardless of whether they have a smartwatch.
If your device has not been updated yet, you can do it manually. To do this, go to the settings section and click on the item with the software update, then wait until the necessary software components are downloaded and installed. The latest update is yet another step towards the comfort of Apple’s consumers, which allows to further unify all iOS devices into a single system.
